Welcome to Spinney Primary School

The Spinney is a very welcoming, caring community and I feel very privileged to be a part of it. The school’s mission statement is “Teaching and Learning Together” and this is very much at the heart of what we do.

In recent years the Spinney has achieved a number of prodigious awards including Investors in People, The Health Promoting School’s Award and the ICT Mark (There are only about 5% of these schools nationally) In 2006 the school was assessed by Ofsted as being an “outstanding” school, one of the first in the country.

Academically the children achieve very highly in English, Maths and Science but we are passionate about promoting all curriculum subjects. At present we offer the children Music and French for one hour per week each. There are a number of clubs which run after school including an ICT club, football, netball and dance club.

There is a strong community feel to the school with a very strong parents association (Friends), a hard working and skilled staff team, and a fully committed Governing Body. The Spinney has a lot to offer our children and we always keep them at the centre of everything we do.

Internet Links

You can go to some special places on the Web that are just for Children - click here for a list of them.

The School Council

Each class elects 2 people to represent them on the School Council. The children on the School Council are in charge of giving classroom ideas to teachers. They can also set up events to get money for charities or for the school.

Each term new pupils are chosen for the school council by you... the children.

Playground Assistants

Responsible children are chosen to help in the playground. You can tell who is a Playground Assistant because of their bright yellow hat.
